Where is the event taking place?

The event is scheduled at the Puntacana Resort and Club, located along the east coast in La Altagracia. This year they will host the fifth edition of the Puntacana Championship. The complex has an exclusive 18-hole course, made up of natural cliffs and quarries.

More than 120 players take to the field at the event, which also offers the opportunity to earn plenty of FedEx Cup points.

The club and the PGA Tour have also extended their contract for four years.

“The PGA TOUR and our members and allies are thrilled to return to Puntacana Resort & Club. After a successful stint with the Korn Ferry Tour, the tournament was elevated to a PGA TOUR event in 2018,” said PGA Tour President Tyler Dennis. “The tournament has continued to grow and thrive to make a lasting impact in the community. We look forward to many years of great competition and showing the beauty of the Dominican Republic to our fans around the world.”
